No doubt you smell better too(well I can't verify that, but I don't doubt it).

Step into an elevator with someone who just had a cig. All I can say is I never want to smell like that again!.

Stand a little taller, breath a little deeper. And upgrade that EFIS or GPS with the 5G you save!!!!

Good job!

I bet that epoxy will be a little stinkier too. Good thing is you won't have any more of those ashes buried between your layups.

We're here for ya' all the way.

Steve, I'm proud of you. Toss out the ash trays, they'll haunt you less when they aren't around.

I've never smoked because of my asthma, but both my father and father-in-law did. My dad quit when he realized that he was winded after running only about 100 feet. My father-in-law quit after suffering mini-strokes caused by decades of smoking. The ugly truth is everyone focusses on lung cancer, when the real damage caused by cigarettes is in your veins and arteries. In my father-in-law's case, his mini-strokes were caused by the repeated constrictions and hardening of the arteries providing blood flow to his brain. He was really lucky that it was caught in time. The physiological effects of nicotine on the body are really awful.

STEVE, THATS GREAT

I quit on November 4th, 1981, 26 years ago!

About two weeks ago, I was walking out the front door of the shop to go BS with a couple people who were smoking across the parking lot (No Smoking allowed in our factory).

As I approached them, I reached into my front pocket, FOR A CIGARETTE

I nearly fell over back-wards when I realized what I was doing, WOW.

The last time something like this happened was about 8 years ago, I was in Tokyo Narita Airport, Walking through one of the passenger lounges, At the end of the hall I seen a Cigarette Machine, I had a very strong urge to go buy a pack and smoke a Cigarette.

When theses urges would crop up, I'd remind myself that I really didn't want to do this. I just don't want to go through the withdrawl, ever again.

Thats the sign of a real addict.

Hang in there, Your a better man for it.

Oh Yah, Throw the ash trays in the garbage, your through with them.
